Commentary on Tesla, Truck Accident on Highway 183 in Bedford

Following too closely is an all too common factor in crashes like this, so it would not surprise me if further investigations showed that's what caused this crash. But being thorough is important with truck wreck investigations. Not only is it important to make sure police didn't overlook other explanations, likely or not, it's also important to understand if there are reasons behind a driver's mistakes that require special attention.

I had a case not long ago, for example, where a truck driver caused a serious wreck because he was rushing to meet an unreasonable deadline. This driver's company would routinely set ludicrous deadlines for drivers, expecting them to cut every possible corner to meet them. If they failed to do so, they risked losing their jobs. It was just a matter of time before someone got seriously hurt, which is why just having that driver face consequences alone wouldn't be good enough. Steps would need to be taken to ensure that whole company cleaned up its act. I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but are steps at least being taken to make sure folks are getting the whole story?
